Grant money is being made available by the NATO Public Diplomacy Division to support societal resilience projects focusing on countering disinformation.
This funding is aimed at NGOs, universities, think tanks, community groups and organisations, and any other pertinent civil society organisations, from NATO member nations.
A diversity of projects will be considered for sponsorship. The central questions to be addressed in project proposals should be as follows:
“What are the most effective and innovative ways to counter disinformation, propaganda and other hostile information activities at societal level? How to empower citizens, especially youth and vulnerable groups, to counter disinformation?”
This can be done through:
- Activities using innovative ways to build societal resilience to disinformation, propaganda and hostile information activities;
- Analytical reports with recommendations;
- Policy roundtable discussions, academic seminars, and conferences, face-to face and/or online;
- Digital media projects, including documentaries, interviews, educational tools;
- Other innovative projects.
The closing date for applications is 10 May 2022.
Any group wishing to submit a proposal for consideration must read the full information and guidelines available at the NATO application website.
